Colin Vallon

After studying classical music for two years Colin Vallon (born November 17 1980 in Lausanne) took classes with jazz pianist Marc Ueter at the age of fourteen. He enrolled at the Swiss Jazz School when he was 18 and studied with Silvano Bazan, William Evans, Manuel Bärtsch and Bert Joris.

In 1999, he founds the Colin Vallon trio which has played regularly ever since, in Switzerland and abroad; in 2004 it released his debut-album “Les Ombres“. In January 2005, the trio opens the Swiss Diagonales Festival with New York guitarist Kurt Rosenwinkel. “Ailleurs”, the second album of the Colin Vallon trio, was published in 2007 by the prestigious avant-garde Label HatHut Records.

”Vallon’s playing and pieces are tonally dense and rhythmically adept. They have something magic that holds the listener captive.” —Reiner Kobe, Jazzpodium
